Taking sound above and beyond
Our top-of-the-range soundbar features 360 Spatial Sound Mapping with 13 speaker units, a new generation of surround technology for immersive, cinematic sound.

Rewriting the rules of surround sound
Go beyond conventional surround sound. Combining physical and phantom speakers, BRAVIA Theatre Bar 9 creates a wider surround sound field for outstanding immersion.

Ultimate surround with 360 Spatial Sound Mapping
Experience the ultimate in home surround. 360 Spatial Sound Mapping technology creates 5 phantom speakers in front of you and reflects sound off the ceiling and walls, enabling cinema-style surround sound from a single soundbar.

Enjoy wider surround sound coverage
Now more people can enjoy the same immersive surround experience. By using phantom speakers, 360 Spatial Sound Mapping technology achieves wider coverage than conventional virtual surround systems.

Unleash the full potential of 360 Spatial Sound Mapping
Add optional wireless rear speakers for an even more expansive sound stage. Working with the rear speakers, the Bar 9 creates up to 11 phantom speakers, including speakers behind you for that authentic cinema feel.

Add a wireless subwoofer and rear speakers for fuller, richer sound
To complete the cinematic experience, combine Sony’s optional wireless rear speakers with an optional subwoofer and enjoy sound with even greater impact.

Sound straight from cinema
Bring authentic cinema surround sound quality to your living room. BRAVIA Theatre Bar 9 not only supports industry-standard formats including Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X®, but also has IMAX® Enhanced certification.

Upmix stereo content to surround sound
Sony's new upmixer delivers rich surround sound even from stereo content. Its innovative algorithm extracts and redistributes individual audio objects to immerse you in 3D sound. While upmixing, AI Sound Separation processing detects human voices and makes them sound clearer.

Makes everywhere the best seat
It doesn’t matter which seat you’re in. It doesn’t even matter what your room’s acoustics are like. Sound Field Optimization lets everyone experience movie theater surround sound.

Optimized sound for maximum enjoyment
We’ve made surround sound simple. Sound Field Optimization not only calibrates sound based on speaker position, it also takes your room’s acoustics into account, and your listening position too.

Speaker placement made simple
Adding rear speakers? Don’t worry about finding the perfect position. Sound Field Optimization calibrates sound based on their location and uses phantom speakers to fill any gaps in the surround stage.

Calibrated to suit your room
No need to remodel your home to get movie theatre acoustics. Sound Field Optimization analyses your room's acoustic characteristics, then uses advanced signal processing to overwrite them with those of a movie theater.

The best seat is where you are
Enjoy quality surround sound wherever you're sitting. Just run calibration with our smartphone app, BRAVIA Connect, and BRAVIA Theatre Bar 9 will detect your position in the room and optimize sound to suit.

Innovative acoustic design with 13 speaker units
There’s more to great surround sound than signal processing alone. Your physical speakers need to deliver exceptional acoustic performance too – and BRAVIA Theatre Bar 9 doesn’t disappoint.

New 2-way speaker
Discover clear, wide surround sound from a single soundbar. The Bar 9 features a new 2-way speaker with added tweeters for front and centre, delivering wider surround sound and a precise sound image.

Quad woofer and passive radiators deliver deep bass
Don’t be fooled by the slimline design. Thanks to built-in quad woofers and passive radiators, the Bar 9 generates the type of deep, resonant bass you’d expect from much larger speakers.

Side speakers and beam tweeters for expansive sound
For added atmosphere, side speakers fill your living space with wide directional sound while beam tweeters expand the sound stage by reflecting directional high frequency sound off the walls.

Hear sound from overhead
Up-firing speakers reflect sound off the ceiling for immersive overhead audio. 360 Spatial Sound Mapping creates phantom ceiling speakers for even more atmospheric sound.

X-Balanced Speaker Unit
The speakers’ unique rectangular shape maximizes the diaphragm area for punchy bass. It also reduces driver excursion and maintains sound pressure, ensuring less distortion and greater vocal clarity.

With BRAVIA, home becomes cinema
Bring the emotion and excitement of a movie theatre home. Pair BRAVIA Theatre Bar 9 with a BRAVIA TV for an unmatched audio-visual experience, immersing you in every scene as never before.

TV and soundbar in perfect harmony
Step up to a completely cinematic experience. Acoustic Center Sync enables the Bar 9 to use your compatible BRAVIA as a centre speaker. So sound comes from the screen, adjusted as part of one integrated speaker system.

Crystal clear voice. Precise dialogue.
No more muffled voices. Combined with compatible BRAVIA, our new Voice Zoom 3™ powered by AI machine learning recognises human voices and amplifies or reduces their volume so even faint dialogue sounds loud and clear.
